Can I just try one of those?

Martin Taylor has drawn my attention to this brilliant skit making fun of people who take advantage of asking for tasters in pubs. The punchline is, from what I’ve heard, only too true. While tasters have their place, I have written before about how asking for one is often just an affectation, and some people do abuse the facility. As one licensee said, “Yes, I do offer tasters. They’re called halves.”


  1. The best approach I have see to this is a pub in Inverness where you can get a single taster on the house but if you want to try multiples you can get your choice of three thirds for the price of a pint.
